It Ain't Easy Judging Photos of the Trinity River

When I directed your attention to those pretty pictures filling City Hall's 2012 calendar yesterday, I forgot to note: Those are the latest top-prize-getters in the third annual Trinity River Corridor Project Photo Contest. Tops, again, was the great Sean Fitzgerald, winner of the second annual contest. That's his work decorating December. Should have mentioned that yesterday.

Anyway: I see the city's posted a video of all the many contenders -- some 700 pictures were entered, out of which 621 appear to have been of the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge -- and those who judged them, including our old friend Allison Smith.
